Apollo 11’s 40th Anniversary

“That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind.”

I can’t claim to have been around for the historic “giant leap” as Neil Armstrong touched down on the moon those 40 years ago (wasn’t even a twinkle in my parent’s eyes at that point) but I’ve lived the moment countless times over through the miracle of technology and I celebrate the achievement with them each and every time. If you get a few moments today, please…ahem…moon walk over to NASA’s official site for a great celebration of the event which includes some nice restored video, audio, pictures, and commentary.

Thanks, once more, for reaching for the stars!

We all benefit as a result.
